NH contractor dies in Connecticut after getting stuck in dentistry's crawlspace


ROCKY HILL, Conn. — Authorities say a man working for a New Hampshire contractor has died while working at a Connecticut business.

Rocky Hill police Sgt. Steve Morgan says officers responded to Children & Family Dentistry and Braces just before 3 p.m. Wednesday for reports of a man stuck in a small crawlspace. The dental office is one of several businesses in the business plaza.

Police say a worker for Hudson, New Hampshire-based Barlo Signs, which had been hired to do repairs on the building's exterior, became unresponsive while working inside the cramped space above the dentist's office.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was not made public.

The cause of death remains under investigation by the state medical examiner.
